No fan of D.K. or of classic psychological suspense will want to miss this extraordinary novel of the human mind's capacity to torment--and destroy--itself. In False Memory, D.K. has created a novel that will stay in your memory long after the final page is turned--a story not only of gripping fear but also of the power of love and friendship. Once more Koontz reveals why he has, as People put it, the "power to scare the daylights out of us".
My husband read it and said it was not very good. There was a movie by the same title starring Robert Redford. Maybe it is better than the book, I have not seen it. Personally, I like conspiracy novels and this is one.
I am not really for any therapy that tells the patient THEY are the problem and THEY can solve it just by thinking other thoughts. That does not make problems go away. If I need to calm down I'd rather take a pill than read this book.
Krek, the giant talking spider, on the run from his cannibalistic mate.
Inyx, the slender, dark-haired beauty, master of warfare.
These are the allies of Dar-elLan Martak. They have banded with Lan against Claybore, the nefarious fleshless wizard who searches for his dismembered body and his lost powers--and who has once again slipped through the portals to the Cenotaph Road. Lan and his allies have only one means to stop Claybore: they must follow their enemy to an unknown world, a planet of warring empires and vast realms of magic, a planet where even with Lan's growing command of the intricacies of sorcery, the Cenotaph Road could be a dead end.
Dishes look pretty easy to put together, not complicated. Broken into sections by course.
Some helpful wine suggestions, red and white. Interesting notes about the regions where the various dishes came from. I have 2 copies that is why I am giving this one away.

My husband rates it between 3-4 *s b/c of it's variation of plot from Koontz's familiar Man, Single-Mom, Kid, Dog plots. Although Koontz is not my husband's favorite author, he does like the genre and has read most of his titles, and thinks this is one of the better.
